Fox rocks in thrilling final

Jesse Crookes hit the game-winning shot with three seconds remaining as the Terry Fox Ravens captured the B.C. AAA senior boys basketball championship on Saturday night at the Langley Events Centre.

Crookes' basket put the Ravens up 75-74 and the Walnut Grove Gators ran out of time in their bid for the school's first championship at this level.

The second-place finish is still the tops for a Langley high school at the senior boys AAA level.

The Gators led by nine points with 3:24 to go, but Terry Fox went on a 15-2 run to end the game, including hitting three three-pointers.

On the winning basket, the Ravens' Daniel Collins missed a three-point attempt, but Tanner Moss kept the ball alive with an offensive rebound, tipping the ball to Crookes who scored on a short jumper in the lane.

Ryan Sclater led Terry Fox with 17 points while Jadon Cohee scored 25 in a losing cause for the Gators.

Paul Getz had 13 points, while Ethan McKean, Brad Hoffman and De'Sean Monsanto all had 10 points apiece.

Charles Luu came off the bench to score six points on a pair of three-pointers.

Crookes finished with 16 points for the Ravens.

Terry Fox led 17-12 after one quarter and 34-32 at the half.

Walnut Grove took a 54-52 lead into the fourth quarter.

Cohee was named a first team all-star for the Gators, while McKean was a second team selection.

Monsanto was a third-team all-star as well as the tournament's top defensive player.
